President Donald Trump could rely on the National Emergencies Act of 1976 to build a border wall without approval from Congress, but the move would likely face challenges?
Section 2808 on the federal law on the role of armed forces, which permits the secretary of defense to begin military construction projects that aren’t authorized by law, using money appropriated for other military construction projects.
Section 2803 of the same armed forces law, which allows some funds appropriated for military construction to be spent on projects that aren’t specifically authorized if they are used for national security and protecting U.S. troops.
Section 2293 of the federal law on navigable waters, which governs reprogramming during national emergencies and resources to “authorized civil works, military construction and civil defense projects that are essential to the national defense.”
Section 284 of the U.S. code on the role of armed forces, which authorizes the secretary of defense to provide support for counterdrug activities and to block drug smuggling.
Section 284 is not only a separate possible ground for Trump to take action; it also could be a building block for Trump to assert power under Section 2293, which requires the wall to be an authorized project.
It could be argued that Section 284’s reference to a drug-smuggling fence constitutes the wall authorization that is needed under 2293....🤔
If the president takes such a tack, will it hold up in court?
